Barbados Approves Climate Change Policy

Home/Uncategorized/Barbados Approves Climate Change Policy

The Barbados Cabinet has approved a new National Climate Change Policy.

The policy is aimed at setting up a national process for adapting to the effects of climate change and to minimize greenhouse gases over the near and long term. It will aim to do so in a way which is consistent with Barbados’ broader sustainable development objectives.

Nationally, the plan aims to continue institutional, administrative and legislative improvements to mitigate climate change as Barbados adapts to a new green economy.

In its latest green move, Cabinet has approved the development of a $377 million dollar green energy complex, the centrepiece of which will transform solid waste into energy via a waste to energy plant.

    I wonder where this green energy complex will be located? Cabinet has to also consider a way of streamlining the establishment of separating organic waste material from inorganic materials if this is to be done on a large scale.
